Smart drop is nice, until you want to gear some alts!
I just ran a first Skeleton King on one of my 60s (with the bug, the fist kill is guaranteed leg). I went with my Wizard in Torment 1. The Leg is a sword, 2hand i believe, something to be excited about for my Barbarian who also need some new gear, it rolled 300+ intel. Well, this is going to the salvage bin...

It's pretty hard right now to make a judgment, because right now, we have loot 2.0 fighting against loot 1.0. My main was quite geared already and had trouble looking for direct upgrade upfront. I wouldn't say though that the legendary attributes are completely useless. Indestructible items is interesting even if it's not the most incredible one. Shad3slayer seems to think a legendary properties is useless because it doesn't improve you DPS, but I don't think it should be this way, it's actually something they should try to avoid, or then people can figure out what is the best Legendary to get, and then, ALL legendaries but the select few become total crap.Posted in: Diablo III General Discussion
Right now, I feel like the loot is in a good place, it feels obviously more rewarding, and I no longer feel like I need to go on the AH to ever progress (especially on alts with less gear). I still think though that Primary stats + crit + AS is just too good, and the game could benefit from more variety in them, because yes, maybe in 6 months after the release of RoS, people will have gotten to a point where getting an upgrade require the same item to drop with simply higher rolls on your good attributes.

Armory still show the item level at which they can start dropping, so it's in fact a level 60 version showing 34.Quote from magiuspaulus
This is probably a stupid question, but how on earth can level 34 items have such incredible stats?Quote from Badglad
1400 DPS Kridershot, super life Unity ring, sexy new Blackthorne legs
On the mage, new helm with flat retard int/vit
On the monk, world top 100 for vit, sexy necklace just a few hours old
EDIT: New necklace on DH, badass new gloves on monk

I haven't tested it, but "Y skills deal X% more damage" cannot possibly increase the elemental portion of a weapon dps! It would be insane! My 1460dps manticore would end up a 1600+dps Manticore with only a 20% increase. Not that I wouldn't like it. But it seems to make elemental weapon so OP, all you have to do is find a weapon with very high elemental damage, get a few items with skills deal X% more damage attribute, change glyph around, and boost your DPS to insane numbers.Posted in: Wizard: The Ancient Repositories
On top of that, it would make too much of a good synergy. You would never get any upgrades, until you can replace all these gear to a new spell type, weapon AND extra gear that gives the bonus...
Someone look into it?

getting 60-70 is probably going to be a trivial amount of time. In other words, even if you hold on to level 60 items, and they are indeed your best items until farming level 70, it will hardly make any difference in the long run because of how quickly we will get from 60 to 70 and will get all these upgrades by farming level 70 stuff.Posted in: Wizard: The Ancient Repositories

Lol at the no end game content... Do you realize we can say this with pretty much ALL the single player/coop games in history?Posted in: Diablo III General Discussion
Mario, you finish the game, tried to break some score records, then what.
Doom, you finish the story, you,ve got your BFG and beat the boss at the highest level, then what?
StarCraft, you finish the campaign, you beat the hardest computer setting, then what?
Skyrim, you finish the campaign, you beat every monster and boss in the game, you are now the kind of the world, now what?
The only way for a video game to stay alive forever is to have competitive PVP (Street Fighter, Battlefield, Starcraft multiplayer) or have the game add constant new content (MMOs, Mod community).

Im pretty sure Cursed Chest is the fastest way around, by a large margin, there's a stream of a guy at level 300+ getting a level every 20 mins. It's more efficient because it's broken, because the chest is right by a waypoint, so people just keep making Torment VI games with 4 players and do the event, and remake. It's extremely boring, but it gives crazy XP, the event alone gives something like 15millions XP, before monster kills get counted, or something around this, so yes, it's very hard to compete against something like that. It's so efficient that Blizz is considering options as to how to stop it, ban, rollback or just nerf it to the ground.Posted in: Diablo III General Discussion
I wouldn't be surpise to see an hotfix coming up in the next couple of hours, and then we will see if players were penalized/rolledback for abusing it. I wouldn't recommend starting now.

I haven't found much Legendaries at level 60 yet, I've got alot of level ~15ish legends on a new alt though, but they don't come with a legendary bonus.Posted in: Diablo III General Discussion
I got a shoulder piece, which was a small toughness upgrade that makes all my gear indestructible.
And a ring that haunts monsters, the rest, the items were just not very interesting or an upgrade so I discarded most of them.

This is the patch Diablo 3 needed. I was skeptical, but this game ROCKS! Leveling is so much smoother now, you keep finding upgrades and cool legendaries that indeed can change your spec, although I haven't personally got one that did. I have got a shoulder upgrade (was better than my crafted one) that makes all my gear indestructible, no biggy, but still fun! The crafting bracers (Razorspikes) give a +% on elemental spells, which is pretty nice, and made me switch a few Runes around. Very fun so far, alot of good rares and alot of legendaries, in about 3 hours, i got about 10 (although some were from 100% boss drop).Posted in: Diablo III General Discussion
